Accompanying the release of deadmau5surprise EP, mau5ville: Level 2, is an unorthodox new music video for his collaboration with Lights, "Drama Free."

Directed by Nick DenBoer, the video is an insane, rainbow tentacle-filled romp through space and time. Whether it's the half-naked men playing basketball with their own severed heads or Lights' singing on a mound of human hands, DenBoer's video is anything but predictable.

This video is not the first time Zimmerman has recruited the help of DeBoer. For deadmau5 and Rob Swire's track "Monophobia" off of mau5ville: Level 1, DeBoer delivered an equally avant garde offering that may have served as an indirect prequel to the latest video.
